Let me tease you! They say this beach can fit two soccer fields, I say… on low tide, even three! The sand – white as sugar, fine as powder, soft as cushion! Punta Sebaring is probably the best beach on my list!
Its name does sounds greek and out of this world. Chances are, it is the very first time that you have heard the place. I am not surprised, Punta Sebaring is that offbeat and remote.
It is a patch of perfectly fine and white sand situated on the southern tip of Bugsuk Island, one of the islands that comprise the Municipality of Balabac which also happens to be the southernmost town of Palawan Province, the last of the last frontier.
The beach is dotted with mangroves and serves as playground for wild monkeys. If you are lucky enough, you’ll chance upon mousedeers that occasionally laze along the shore. These mousedeers dwell in the woods in the interior of the island.
It is raw, remote and unspoiled. But words will fall short to describe the sublime beauty of Punta Sebaring.
The water, perfectly turquoise and bountiful. Warm and calm on summer days but roaring during monsoons.
There is no commercial establishment in the island… no bars, no parties, no chaotic crowd. Mobile signal is also non existent. What the place offers is unforgettable experience. Priceless simple pleasures in watching the sunrise, basking in the sun, lazing in the beach and communing with the best of nature.
There’s no easy way of getting here as it takes five hours of land travel from Puerto Princesa and additional two hours of voyage. But the long and strenuous travel will be rewarded by the sheer beauty and enchantment of this slice of paradise.
Let me tease you once more! They say this beach can fit two soccer fields, I say even three during low tide! The sand – white as sugar, fine as powder, soft as cushion! The water – warm and calm on summer, roaring during monsoons. I am certain… Punta Sebaring is the best beach on my list!
